Crocus and Faith

I noticed something the other day as I was heading out to work. A little back story: John planted some crocus the weekend before he left. This was a little more than a month ago. Well, the other day I noticed something poking through the soil in the pots.

While I miss him greatly and know that he may not be back (that is up to God), I am grateful for all eph 4,32he did for me while in my life. These crocus will serve as a reminder of renewal in my life and the love I hold for this man. No matter how hurt and angry I have been over the past few weeks, I know how I feel deep down. I only wish he could have believed the truth of my love for him. Either way, and despite all of the turmoil, I have forgiven him and pray for him to find peace in his life, wherever he may be.

Since he left, I have been meeting with one of my pastor’s on a weekly basis (well, missed 1 week but that’s ok). I am focusing myself on talking with God on a daily basis and working on my faith. I have always believed in Jesus and His sacrifice for my sins; since I was a little girl. I haven’t always walked the right path. This is what I am focused on learning: God’s path for my life.

I don’t know what He holds for my future, but I do know He is allowing the crocus to grow. A sign of His promises to us.

A New Project

I spent part of Saturday with a friend of mine down in Ellenton and Palmetto. We visited Emerson Point Preserve and the Gamble Mansion & Plantation. Here are some pictures:

You’ll notice in the pictures a stitched piece. I am not sure how old it is, but it’s been preserved nicely. 100_0413 

Also, while at Gamble Mansion I noticed an interesting item. So, now on my Projects list is “The Gamble Mansion”.

Not the best picture, but you get a general idea.

Not much else to say right now.



In a separate post, I will leave you with a song that is just amazing!
